The skiing was epic today. Liam and I started out our day with a breakfast sandwich and a coffee from our friend Robin who runs the Summit Cafe. If you are like me and don't eat breakfast before hitting the slopes I would recommend stopping by The Summit Cafe. After breakfast, we skied down Defiance to grab the Glades Peak Quad. Defiance had plenty of snow and was loads of fun. Our next run was Upper Fall Line, which was left ungroomed. I really enjoyed this trail and Upper Fall Line would have to be my trail of the day. We had to get back to the office so we only had time to sneak one more run in. The final run was Sapphire to Broken Arrow and then through The Zone to hit the superpipe. We saw tons of people with smiles on their face really enjoying all that Okemo had to offer, bumps, trees, groomers, and ungroomed terrain. Tomorrow is going to be a great ski day as well. Don't be scared away by the forecast, the morning is going to be clear and precipitation free. Clouds will increase later in the afternoon along with the chance of showers. Once our groomers get this new snow groomed in we will be left with soft smooth corduroy. I can't wait to get out for first tracks and take some groomer laps.
